|Top 5 Ingredients*|
We stand divided on Rachael Ray Nutrish dog food, which is why we only give this brand 3 stars. We like that the formulas contain meat or meat products at the top of the ingredient list, as dogs need a great deal of protein in their diets for optimum health. In addition, egg products and healthy vegetables add additional protein, fiber and nutrients. However, we find that both the wet and dry versions of this brand contain a number of controversial ingredients that offer little nutritional value for dogs. For example, brown rice is not necessarily bad for dogs, but it offers few vitamins, minerals or proteins. In addition, the use of corn, soybean meal and pasta made from wheat flour can cause problems for dogs with allergies. Overall, Rachael Ray Nutrish dog food is just an average brand, and although it is cheaper than many other premium dog foods, you may want to consider paying a bit more for a dog food with fewer fillers.
The reviews of celebrity Rachael Ray’s dog food line, Rachael Ray Nutrish are very mixed. On one side, pet owners are saying that their dogs love the taste of the food and exhibit shiny glossy coats, high energy levels and solid stools after switching to this brand. People also like the fact that this food is very good value for the money, and that you can choose between many flavors of dry and wet formulas. On the other hand, some dog owners have reported that their dogs have had health problems after eating this food, including diarrhea, vomiting, itchy skin with rashes and even bladder stones. Although it is difficult to prove that the food is the culprit, many of these dissatisfied customers feel that this food is not good for dogs, especially those with allergies, and they do not recommend buying Rachael Ray Nutrish products.
